Welcome to North Idaho
To live in a place other people dream of visiting is incredible. Through the lens of my camera OnLocation North Idaho will bring you a slice of life as we know it in the Idaho panhandle. Enjoy!

In medieval England, people would celebrate the start of spring by going out to the country or woods and gathering greenery and flowers or "bringing in the may." Maypoles would be hung with greenery and ribbons, brightly painted and decorated... serving as a central point for the festivities.
In North Idaho, May Day signals the countdown to summer as flowers begin to bloom, beaches are groomed and everyone happily puts away their winter clothes. The red tulips in front of Coeur d'Alene City Hall are a bright reminder that another glorious summer season is just around the corner.
